Bronson Opening Second “FastCare” Location
Bronson Hospital is opening a second FastCare facility in June. It will be on West Main St. just west of US 131.
Currently under construction at 6220 W. Main St., this will be the second FastCare clinic that Bronson operates in the area. The first clinic is located inside the Meijer store at 5121 S. Westnedge Ave. in Portage. Bronson FastCare clinics' goal is to offer convenient and cost effective health care services for minor conditions and symptoms.
Bronson FastCare takes walk-in patients only, accepts most insurance and accepts the office visit co-pay determined by the insurance company. For those with a high deductible plan or no insurance, a visit is only $69, including basic lab services.
Medical services at Bronson FastCare are provided by licensed nurse practitioners and physician assistants. If a patient arrives with symptoms that exceed the clinic’s scope of services, the patient will be referred to a doctor or emergency department.
Types of minor conditions and symptoms often treated include sore throats, fevers, flu, ear and sinus infections, pink eye, skin rashes and allergies. Lab services are also available for pregnancy tests, mononucleosis tests, rapid strep and urinalysis.
